At the intersection of art and spirituality comes two evenings of wild and whirling dance, ground-breaking drums and Rumi’s evocative poetry. This is a well-established collection of masters, seasoned from years together, all at the top of their game. Mirror features Banafsheh, her dance company NAMAH and music from the world renowned ZARBANG Trio with special guest, the virtuoso Greek musician, Matthaios Tsahouridis on the Pontic Lyra.
Merging contemporary dance with ancient Sufi ritual, Persian dance, Tai Chi and Flamenco, Banafsheh’s choreography takes the audience on a journey into the mysteries of being alive and living from the heart, accompanied by ZARBANG’s hypnotic wall of sound. Mirror reflects our common human experience where, we don’t see ourselves as we really are, in the full glory and majesty that lies beyond self-interested egoism, which is wreaking havoc in our world today.
NAMAH is Kelly Archbold, Shannon D’Souza, Roxanne Onofre and Banafsheh Sayyad
ZARBANG Trio is Hakim Ludin with Behnam and Reza Samani
